SSDs are much, much faster across all applications and data but at a high price per byte. Traditional drives are much, much slower across all applications and data use but at a low price per byte.

This is a compromise that speeds up application/game performance by making frequently used and primarily static bytes (like code or fixed graphic bytes in a game) be accessed faster than a traditional drive by caching it in a solid state buffer approaching SSD speeds for such data. For rest of the uses, it is similar to a 5400 rpm traditional drive which is to say very slow. So you would see some difference to your existing drive but not a whole lot for general computer use.

So a good deal if the intended use fits that profile of primarily static data being accessed faster especially if the games are so big or you have lots for them to be all on a SSD and hence labeled gaming drive. May help computer boot up time somwhat but not as much as a SSD would.

If physical space permits and a lot of large games are not your primary use, you are better off with a smaller SSD for OS and applications and a faster traditional drive for data than this one. If you are on a gaming laptop with space for just one drive and you keep a lot of games on the laptop, this would be a good option.

I'm new to this. What's the difference between this and an SSD regular? Price and performance wise? My PC right now has a basic hard drive and it's bottlenecking my computer

So would it be better to get a small 125-250GB SSD for OS, and then maybe this drive or a faster drive for gaming? I have all my games and OS on one tradition old hard drive.

How would this work on an XB1 as an external disk? I mean- does the XB have to know how to make use of the SSD/Hybrid features, or will it just somehow 'work'?

I have a 1tb external HDD that's getting close to full. Double that, with (some) SSD performance for ~$70? Seems like a fire rating... or am I missing something?

Good deal.

Fry's use of Fire Cuda instead of FireCuda makes it not show up in search, it seems.

SSD is good putting OS and gaming as it load your PC and games much faster. These HDD are good for storage only. I only place videos and pictures on my HDD whiles games go on SSD.

STILL a good price if you missed out on the Fry's deal! Both Newegg and Amazon have it on sale. Use Amazon if you have prime to get free 1 day shipping.

Newegg deal ($78): https://slickdeals.net/f/10644748-2tb-seagate-firecuda-gaming-sshd-2-5-hybrid-hard-drive-st2000lx001-78ac?v=1&src=SiteSearch
Amazon deal ($80): https://slickdeals.net/f/10643092-2tb-firecuda-sata-6gb-s-2-5-hybrid-gaming-hard-drive-79-99?v=1&src=SiteSearch

I personally bought the Amazon deal as it was worth it for me to get it tomorrow.
